Availo is changing the way freelancers work

We notify freelancers of the best design jobs at startups, studios and global agencies, then let you talk to them directly - all within our app. There’s no middle man, no tiresome scrolling through job lists and no long waits for email responses. It's different.

Instant communication

The whole team at Availo have all been freelancers before, so we know how annoying finding new work can be. We're getting rid of long job lists, scrapping the need to upload your full portfolio and ending the worry of inconsistent work. Our platform simply allows clients to directly message you with freelance openings.

Local work

Long commutes aren't fun and working with companies the other side of the planet isn't great for complex projects. That's why Availo only links you with potential clients in London. Grab a coffee together, chat through the project face-to-face, then get hired with a simple, instant, in-app payment. It's that easy.

Only the best

Most services require freelancers to enter a huge amount of information, upload work and get recommendations before getting work. That's why the best freelancers don't use these services. Our platform is effectively an accessible black book and communication platform, where all the top freelancers can be found easily.

 

One of the best founding teams you'll ever meet

Rob, Nick and another Nick have all been freelancers and hired many freelancers over the years, so we know exactly what the problem is and how to solve it. That's why we formed Availo, to make it easier for both clients and freelancers to find each other. Each of us have excelled in our own fields and are now coming together to make an awesome platform that thousands of people are desperate to use.
